From the décor to the cuisine, you are transported to Southern Mexico—more specifically, Oaxaca—as soon as you walk into Espita Mezcaleria. Vibrant murals by revered Oaxacan street artists cover the walls, while steel surfaces and an exposed reclaimed wood ceiling give the space a more modern industrial vibe. The Shaw neighborhood restaurant shines a spotlight on the region's seven styles of mole alongside sopes and ceviches. The fact that the restaurant sources heirloom corn straight from Southern Mexico to grind their own masa and make hand-pressed tortillas every morning is quite impressive, as is their selection of over 100 mezcals.
